Toronto's Drew Hutchison came within one out of his second career complete game; Jose Bautista homered and drove in three runs; and the host Blue Jays beat the Baltimore Orioles, 5-1, on Wednesday night, snapping a four-game losing streak.

Melky Cabrera had three hits, as the Blue Jays handed Baltimore its first loss in four games.

Hutchison (8-9) struck out eight and allowed just one hit, a solo homer by Chris Davis in the second, to win for the second time in three starts. Hutchison responded to the homer by setting down 22 straight batters, but he was replaced after Nick Markakis walked in the ninth.

Yankees 5, Tigers 1 - Chris Capuano outpitched Justin Verlander, while Brian McCann and Chase Headley homered to send host New York past Detroit.

The Yankees improved to 2-1 in three straight games started for Detroit by AL Cy Young Award winners. New York edged Max Scherzer on Monday, then David Price got a no-decision Tuesday in a game the Tigers won in the 12th.

Capuano (2-2) gave up an unearned run and five hits in 62/3 innings, striking out eight and walking one.

Rangers 3, White Sox 1 - Adam Rosales homered twice in a game for the first time in his career, and Nick Tepesch pitched scoreless ball into the sixth inning, leading visiting Texas over Chris Sale and Chicago. White Sox centerfielder Adam Eaton exited in the second after running into the right-center-field fence trying to catch Rosales' first homer. The team said Eaton bruised his lower back.

Nationals 7, Mets 1 - Washington's Doug Fister made quick work of visiting New York, and that's one reason why his teammates provided him with ample hitting support. Fister took a five-hit shutout into the eighth inning, Adam LaRoche homered twice, and Danny Espinosa also connected.

Rays 7, Athletics 3 - Seven months after elbow surgery, Jeremy Hellickson delivered on a day Tampa Bay needed a lift. Kevin Kiermaier hit a two-run homer to help Hellickson end a six-start winless stretch for his first victory in 11 months, and the visiting Rays avoided a sweep.
